The State Plan is the main instrument of the General State Administration for the development and achievement of the objectives of the Spanish Strategy for Science and Technology and Innovation (EECTI). This programme is structured into two state plans, the State Plan 2021-2023, which is the one that is currently being executed, and the State Plan 2024-2027.
